Hmm, I could have sworn the F150 was the best selling pickup, yet Ford claims their sales have been hurt because of trademark confusion? That's pretty funny. Why does Ford even care when the F150 is the best selling truck? Oh yea, that's right, it's not.

if your talking about adding silverado and sierra sales together, 1 that sorta doesnt count, and 2, add the Lincoln Mark LT to F150 sales.

Trademark law basically requires companies to protect their trademark or lose it. So while this might seem like a joke to some of you, it's a necessary step if Ford wants to maintain their F-150 trademark.

I'm sure there were more Sierras built than Mark LTs, so adding the Mark LT doesn't really help the F150's sales numbers.

And it does count, because it's the same platform, same engines, and the same main company. Lincoln=Ford, GMC= General Motors

Doesn't Ford partially own Ferrari? Or am I thinking of another sports car company?

Ferrari sues over their red color, then they do something as stupid as this.

i think you might be miss informed. according to this article: http://news.pickuptrucks.com/2011/01...uck-sales.html even if you add the GMC Sierra sales to the Silverado it still doesnt add up to more than the F-series.

2010 totals as of Dec 2010
F-series= 528,349 as

Sierra+Silvarado= 499,929

"For the first time since 2001, sales of Ford F-Series (528,349) were greater than combined sales of Chevrolet Avalanche, Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra full-size pickups (520,444)"

I saw completely different numbers. Either way, that gap is pretty minimal, so Ford's "accomplishment" isn't really that impressive. I think Ford knows this as well, hence why they're pushing prospective truck buyers into F150's.

id say the fact that they have been at the top of the heap for over 30 years is pretty damn impressive no matter what way you cut it. theres no denying the success of the F-series trucks.
